Hi, I'm Krishna.
Here you'll see my inane ramblings mingled with a lot of things I like (family, friends, living things in general, philosophy, books, tea, art, music, religions of all kinds, surfing, baking, puns, and more).
Reading. Ethel Leontine Gabain (French-English, 1883-1950). Oil on canvas. Wolverhampton Art Gallery.
For financial reasons and due to a fall in the print market, Gabain moved over to painting with oils. She sent her first oil painting, Zinnias, to the R.A. in 1927, where it was well received. She also painted a number of landscapes in oils.
Tughra (Official Signature) of Sultan Suleiman. Istanbul, Turkey. c. 1555-1560. Ink, opaque watercolor, and gold on paper.
sometimes people who are sad dont always need the “it gets better talk”
sometimes people just want to hear “you are sad, you are trying your best, and it’s okay. you’re okay and you’re alive and that’s a big accomplishment”
because i know for myself unconditional optimism gets really fucking annoying. sometimes i just want to be sad and have it be okay that im sad.
don’t make me feel weirder than i already do in my own skin.
whenever i get low on money i start thinking really irrationally like what if i hadn’t spent that $10 back in 2004

This is so important!
I never know what to ask and end up looking like a fool cause I don’t have a question prepared.
Don’t be me.
Sketches for a set of Colorado wildflower cards I’m doing. Prickly poppy and Mexican coneflower. More to come!
I know I’m not the only one who does this but you know when you have this like boundary around you when you’re sitting at a table or a desk that only you are allowed to be in
And then someone or something that isn’t yours
gets in that space
and you just
guilty as charged
